Summer Reality

I had this melancholy post all written, feeling all worried, and then I went out to my TiVo and watched Big Brother All Stars. (note: sortof spoilers to follow)

Now, I've never been addicted to this show, mostly watching it on nights when there wasn't anything on. This year, it's my guilty pleasure. OMG! Maybe it's because I've seen these people before, but I can't get enough of it. I feel a bit queasy when it's over. Every night I'm like "Is this Big Brother night?" Thank goodness it comes on three times a week, or I'd go nuts. (it's not a long walk, it seems)

These people make me laugh! Will, with his big "send me home" speech. And Jase is mad as a hornet, and I'm worried for James, because he just put a big ol' target on his butt. And Marcellis and his having the hots for Kaysar. I just watch the whole time with a big ol' stupid grin on my face.

I'd like to think that I'm intellectually above reality tv, but alas, I'm not. I don't know if you all have seen Hell's Kitchen, but I can't get enough of that show either. Now, I know that I have this weird thing about British men, but I am madly in love with Chef Gordon Ramsey. When he takes the winners on their little outings with him, he is so nice and sweet and then BAM! they're in the kitchen and he's yelling and I'm just happy to know that there's someone in the world more angry than I am. :) I find it sexy. Yes, I know I need help.

So after a little TV, my sadness is gone. I am so simple, I'm ashamed. ;) Don't worry, the melancholy will be back, so you might yet get to read that post. And I know you're all just WAITING to see a bit of my serious side. ;)

Haven't watched Hell's Kitchen and used to watch BB but I'm addicted to Workout (on Bravo) and Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and Project Runway! Yes, I'm a dork (we just got Bravo and I'm soooooo happy!)

Welllllll... I can't relate. *hangs head in sorrow* ... I just don't watch ANY tv... But you should be GLAD that you're addicted to these shows! Yes! You want to know why? I can tell you! Nielson HATES me... I can't keep up with my friends conversations... my family abandons me for the box in the "other" room... I'm beginning to think I NEED reality tv! But I just can't bring myself to DO it! Look... now I'M all melancholy...

I'm addicted to Super Nanny & Wife Swap...I used to watch How Clean Is Your House but we don't get that anymore.
Why do I like these shows? Because they proove there are people out there more messed up than I am! LOL!

DD suggested that we should be on Wife Swap and I explained what the opposite of me was to her...she quickly decided that she didn't want that at all!

reality tv is better than reality life, sometimes. I'm not watching BB, but did watch Rockstar last night. I'm probably hooked now. hey, you never know, I may just show up in vegas!!

I'm not into reality TV, never have been.

In fact, we don't even watch TV at our house, we don't have it. We watch movies and that's it.

I think that's why television shows (especially reality ones) are so popular. It allows us to forget about our own troubles for a while.

I gotta watch BB too. It's one of the best things about summer.

Crack me up! We do that here, too. "is it big brother night?" And I go into panic mode if I forget to record it.....i'm glad i'm not the only one who admits to watching it. Ha!

I don't watch any of those. I don't think we get them here but if you like british men chack out Dr Who. The "second" season, with the tenth doctor David Tennant. Yum!
